In America, gospel music (GM) has been divided between white & black gospel. Within these div. are further div.: southern gospel, contemporary Christian music, spirituals, & hymns. From the psalms of the early Puritans through the hymns of Isaac Watts & the social activism of the Wesleys, to the camp meeting songs of the Kentucky Revival, the spirituals that came from the slave culture & the hymns from the great revival after the Civil War, GM  advanced through the 19th cent. The 20th cent. brought the technol. of recordings & the electron. media to GM. “The definitive history of a uniquely American art form.” Illus.
